Consumers of the best-selling waffle brand, Eggo®, will delight in knowing that their beloved food is now being produced in a more environmentally friendly way. Kellogg Company’s Eggo® bakery in San Jose, California, recently installed fuel cell technology that generates enough clean, reliable energy to produce approximately half of the facility’s annual electrical consumption. The system also uses less water to generate this power than if it had been supplied by the utility grid.
“This is just one example of how Kellogg is continuously looking for new processes and technology to delight consumers with foods made in innovative ways that minimize the environmental impact of our operations,” said Holdorf. “We’re making progress but also recognize the need to drive change, which is why we’re stepping up our plans now with new goals for 2020.”
Additional information about these commitments can be found online at www.KelloggCorporateResponsibility.com. Details of the company’s progress against the new commitments will be included in Kellogg Company’s future Corporate Responsibility Reports.
